Aqua Narrowboats Luxury Hire Boats Relocated to Barton Turns Marina
For directions to our Narrowboat Hire and Holiday Base please see our Contact Us page.
Aqua Narrowboats are thrilled to announce that the Hire Fleet has now been relocated to Barton Turns Marina on the Trent and Mersey Canal (just outside Burton-on-Trent).
Aqua Narrowboats will continue to provide the same high level of service but the marinas position, closer to the heart of the Midlands canal network, will enable our customers much quicker access to Fradley Junctionallowing a whole day of extra holiday cruising on the main system whilst still retaining our position on the Leicester Ring. Please see our Canal Routes page for more information about canal routes and planning your canal boat trip.
Barton Turns Marina is another prestigious site with the same feel as Mercia Marina offering a range of shops, cafes and even small cinema! You can stop for breakfast at The Apple Tree Tearoom before embarking on your narrow boat adventure or visit the award winning Gallery Three which offers a diverse mix of contemporary Fine Art. For more information about the facilities please visit the Barton Turns Marina website.
Please see our Book Online page to book your luxury narrowboat holiday online, alternatively you can contact the office on 01283 701041 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hire Fleet – Update 23/09/21. We are currently 53% booked for the 2022 as demand is high.
We are continuing to take bookings as normal for our 2022 hire boat season – including bookings from Novices.
Presently we’re still not taking any short break bookings, but will honour those already booked with us.
Bedding Update: Please be aware that we are once again providing duvets, bedding and towels for hirers. However we politely request that you provide your own pillows and pillow cases for the 2022 season.
Due to the amount of time spent with Novices, and close proximity on the stern deck, we still request that face masks are worn whilst tuition takes place.
We will continue to monitor our guidance and decisions as and when needed. For the continued protection of our customers, and in addition to our normal strict cleaning regimes, we shall carry on applying a Microbe Shield at intervals on all hire boats during the course of the 2022 season.
